That's funny! My ad says "Lose 42 lbs in 3 Months" ... still a bit extreme for most people.

Actually the only place you lose weight is in your wallet if you answer these ads.

That's right BARGOO ~ some well-meaning, but naive people even send me emails suggesting that I buy these products to help me lose weight. I am not spending hundreds of $$$ a month on colon cleanses and herb pills ... they are a complete waste of money!!!

I've seen that one also throught the Prevention websit. You would think that Prevention would screen this and have better information available.

the worst thing though is young kids or teens that might be surfing the web and click on this stuff. i remember when i was around 14 years old i called up one of these companies wanting to order their stuff. thankfully i didn't end up buying it but these diet scams are causing so much harm
